Will Francis Ngannou ever return to UFC? Chael Sonnen calls Dana White's bluff || Super Admin
Chael Sonnen recently weighed in on Francis Ngannou's potential UFC return. Ngannou exited the promo earlier this year, stopping working to find to terms after agreement negotiations covering over a year.
'The Predator' has actually given that claimed to be in talks with several MMA promos in addition to outlining boxing matches versus Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. On The Other Hand, Dana White shut down any type of opportunity of Ngannou returning to his promo throughout the UFC 285 post-fight media scrum.
Nevertheless, Chael Sonnen believes we shouldn't take the UFC president's comments at stated value. According to 'The American Gangster', White closing down Ngannou's prospective return is another working out ploy. The 46-year-old said on his YouTube channel:
"I think that Francis can still, once he has the evidence he needs, go back to the UFC. That's what I think. Don't think you'll have to correct me and tell me, 'No Dana said they'll never talk to him.' Look, it's all a negotiation. Every time one guy is talking about it, that's all in the negotiation. So if Dana's still there telling you, 'No we're not interested, won't work with him', he's still negotiating."
Catch Sonnen's comments listed below:
BKFC head of state Dave Feldman lately labeled Ngannou's demands 'unrealistic' while speaking about arrangements with the former UFC champ. Referring to Feldman's remarks, Sonnen recommended that it's time for 'The Killer' to wake up and also call back Dana White.

Francis Ngannou had originally required a clause in the renewal of his UFC contract that would certainly allow him to contend in a crossover boxing fight. However, the contract settlements ultimately failed because of numerous other needs from 'The Predator' relating to fighter pay, healthcare and also sponsorship, etc.
While Dana White rejected the suggestion of Ngannou potentially returning to the UFC, the Cameroonian isn't seemingly worried about that. Responding to White's comments, the 36-year-old claimed:
"Hey, I don't care what Dana White say. That was my call, not his call. So, he has to make his own amends with that. I made my amends, I'm good so wish him to do the same."
